vacation rental description

"The Great Escape River House" has so much to offer! An incredible vacation, luxury accommodations & memories of which will last a lifetime.

Don't let the price scare you! This is one of the best deals for what you get on the coast. Depending on time of year, weekly full capacity bookings are between $22 & $45/person per day (amt. includes rent, cleaning fee, & taxes - not the refundable damage deposit). As with most vacation rentals, the rates are slightly higher when less than a week is booked.

This is not a 2000 sq ft house, awkwardly configured for 22 people. This is 4500 sq ft of luxury accommodations! Everyone under the same roof. Staying in separate hotels or condo's is like herding cats with a big group. This house offers sleeping for 22, 4 full bathrooms, 1000 sq ft gourmet kitchen/dining area, 1200 sq ft Great Room, numerous areas for large & small gatherings. There are over 1000 sq ft of covered porches, Private Swimming Pool & Hot Tub. All of this right on the Biloxi River. It is truly "The Great Escape River House!"

This home was well thought out for accommodating large overnight groups. There are 12 individual beds & 2 convertible sofas. The beds are: 1 king, 5 queens, & 6 full size beds. The 6 full beds are 3 bunk beds, top & bottom full size beds. 14 people could each have their own bed or convertible sofa. For the maximum capacity of 22, we've figured only one person in each of the top bunks, double occupancy in each of the full, queen, and king beds, and only one person on a convertible sofa. These beds are also not placed awkwardly close to each other. 2 Queen beds & the King size bed each have a private room, 1 bunk has a private room, 2 other bunk beds share a large bedroom, & the massive loft has 3 queen beds & the two convertible sofas.

The 4 full baths are also well distributed. The loft has a full bath. The 6 full size beds (the 3 bunk beds) are in adjacent rooms with their own full bath. The 2 bedrooms off the hall, with queen beds, share the hall full bath. Even the master bedroom's bathroom, which has a private entrance from the master bedroom, also offers a 2nd entrance to the bathroom through the laundry room; Offering more options.

Driving up, you're welcomed by a circular drive with beautiful fountain in the center. The elevated house, has plenty of covered parking. Up the stairs, the covered front porch offers seating for 8. A cozy place to relax, or for the smokers a comfortable retreat to grab a last puff. Sorry, no smoking inside the house.

The Great Room, has a magnificent 20+ ft granite wet bar, 10 bar stools, double keg cooler, microwave, ice maker, & everything you would need for mixing drinks (blender & glassware). This is just the beginning of the Great Room, which is equipped with many flat screen HD TVs, a pool table, & huge sectional sofa.

The custom made Gourmet kitchen of your dreams awaits! Granite counters that go on for miles, 2 massive islands, every appliance you could want & usually more than one of them are awaiting you in this kitchen. The breakfast bar offers seating for 11. The dining table seating for 8, with an additional folding chairs available. 2 ~ 50" TV's can be seen from just about any location in the kitchen or dining area. The kitchen comes fully equipped - If you need it for cooking, its probably here waiting for you!

The back covered deck is a little peace of heaven, offering an 8 person hot tub, many TV's & a stereo. Great view of the river. Lighted palm trees add a little night time atmosphere. Seating for 12 at 2 Glass tables. Back deck has closing gate to keep little ones on porch & benches for watching river, back yard, & pool.

Down the back stairs, you enter the enclosed ramp area to the elevated deck that surrounds 15' x 30', 4 1/2' deep above ground swimming pool for a refreshing dip. A charcoal grill with commercial style large stainless steel sink & counter for prep work is available. There are tables, chairs & umbrellas. There's also room to tan.

Great Place for a Family Reunion and Fun!

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: August 6, 2014

What a great family weekend at this location with 25 people sleeping comfortably. Everyone had a blast and I think the house worked out perfect for our group. We enjoyed the river with kayaks and canoes, cooled off in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub. We played billiards at our full bar with our own beer tap till late in the evening and early mornings. We enjoyed the large kitchen for great family meals and gatherings. We celebrated birthdays and tried our luck at the local casinos BUT being around family under one roof was the icing on the cake!
The rental process was easy and everyone was so great to work with to set up or weekend. We will for sure visit this location again.

Incredible Vacation Home In Gulfport!!

Review submitted: July 5, 2014   Date of arrival: June 22, 2014

We rented this beautiful home for our family reunion with guests driving from as far away as Michigan. The house was incredible. It has every amenity you could ask for and Patricia and Grady ( My Hero!) were so very accommodating. They are Southern Hospitality personified! We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and spent many evenings on the covered deck enjoying family time with our group of 23 and then quiet mornings watching the river while sipping our coffee. Imagine our surprise when we walked down the River Path and came to a charming covered sitting area with a swing, fountain and TV! Amazing!! The pictures on the websites are accurate but they do not do justice to the pure luxury feel of this home. We felt like we had our own personal hotel! Even after an 18 to 20 hour drive from Michigan our guests agreed it was totally worth it and they would love to do it again. Thank you again, Patricia and Grady!

Just... "Outstanding!"

Review submitted: July 5, 2014   Date of arrival: June 8, 2014

Just celebrated a Family Reunion and couldn't have had a better experience. This house was just perfect. Everything you could want or need is there. 12 Adults/8 kids (8-15/yrs., plus two 2/yr olds) had wonderful week. Only spent one day at the beach because they were having so much fun in the pool! The hot tub was very popular too! Movie Theater family room was a hit. Everyone brought their favorite DVD. We even did "smores" in the new firepit. Site is convenient to both Walmart and Pizza Hut. We grilled almost every night. Grady and Miss Patricia couldn't have been better Hosts for our event. Mississippi Hospitality at it's best! My grandkids put it clearly, "Gramps, we have to do this again!" We are coming back!
